The Kentucky Association of Health Care Facilities,  has named Kay Bush, an owner at Glasgow's Glenview Healthcare its 2012 Better Life Corporate statewide award winner.   BUSH SAYS THE AWARD WAS A BIG SURPRISE.  SHE SAYS SHE PITCHES IN BECAUSE OF HER DEDICATION TO STAFF AND RESIDENTS:

 

"I started out as a nursing assistant on the floor.  I know what hard work

it is to be on the floor.  Starting basically at the entry position working my

way up I really appreciate every job and everything they do at that nursing

home.  And the more I can do for them the better it is."

 

BUSH BEGAN AS A CERTIFIED NURSING ASSISTANT IN 19-80 AND NINE YEARS LATER SHE BECAME AN OWNER. SHE HAS PAINTED WALLS, OFFERED FINANCIAL AID FOR STAFF TO CONTINUE EDUCATION, SETS UP THE ANNUAL FALL FESTIVAL AND PLANS AN ANNUAL BANQUET.

BUSH SAYS SHE IS A HANDS ON OWNER AND ADMITS THE STAFF SOMETIMES IS SURPRISED TO SEE SOME OF THE TASKS SHE UNDERTAKES.

"Most people cannot believe an owner will jump in and paint and mop

floors and do whatever but I believe I am not too good to do any job at

that nursing home."

BUSH SAYS SHE HOPES THERE’S A LESSON IN HER WILLINGNESS TO JUMP IN AND DO WHATEVER JOB NEEDS DOING.

 

"I want them to see that I am just like they are.  I am just another person.

I am no better than they are.  And I am just tickled to death to be there to

do whatever I can for the staff and the residents at Glenview."

 

Congratulations to Kay Bush, owner of Glenview Healthcare
